We know Decembers’ festivities, food, and expenses probably left you with a bit of remorse. Good thing it is the new year and you can take control again of your eating habits. Why not start with a healthy diet with the help of Avocados from Mexico?
One medium-sized avocado contains 11% of the recommended daily intake of fiber, 80 calories, and 6 grams of good fats (5 grams of monounsaturated fat and 1 gram of polyunsaturated fats). Avocados also contribut nearly 20 nutrients, including fiber — which keeps you fuller for longer — and other vitamins and minerals.
If you’re looking for nutritious and affordable recipes this month, here are some of our suggestions.

Another great thing about avocados is they can fit into a variety of healthy eating patterns, like the three healthy eating patterns recognized by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans: the Healthy U.S.-Style Eating Pattern, the Healthy Mediterranean-Style Eating Pattern and the Healthy Vegetarian Eating Pattern. If you’re looking to get on board, you will love this dish. Quick reminder: before changing your diet, it’s always best to consult your doctor or a nutrition specialist.
